“Good view and ok food, bad service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

The fish sandwitch is great, a great winter place, but service is really bad in the summer. They have both inside and outside seating with a view of the beach. Recomened in winter not so much in summer.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Every time I go I order wine from the wine menu. And every single time the server comes back to say they don't have it. I try ordering different wines and it still happens. Sometimes 2 or 3 times in one visit. Come on folks, either change the menu or do a better job ordering! During last night's visit the service was incredibly slow. The food is average - ok if you are coming off the beach for a hot dog or burger, but that's about it. Way overpriced. I only go for the live music.

“some really good food....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

We had gotten fixed reviews when we inquired with folk we met on Island. So, we decided to give it a try. The GROUPER Sandwiches are awesome! One of our group had the fish fried, another grilled. Both were pleased.

Another of our group had the fish tacos. Very Good!

“close and excellent food and drink”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

We stayed at the condo connected to the restaurant and spent money there every day of our 7 days vacation. My son in law got the burger and said it was the best burger he has ever had! The servers came out to the pool periodically for orders and the service and the food was great. The frozen margarita is the best I have ever had! One day, a couple of us shared a crab quesadilla and it was delicious! The last night we were there, we went down for a drink and dessert. I got the bourbon pecan pie and it was almost as good as mine! My daughter got the chocolate lava cake and she loved it! The mudslide was like a chocolate milkshake. There is also a poolside bar right next to the pool. All in all, a great place!

“Don't go here for good food.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

The food here was the worst we had during our trip. Our party of 4 had different entrees and no one thought their meal was good. The server was very nice and did a good job.
